The Coast Guard says it is continuing its search for a Charleston man who was reported missing off a cruise ship sailing between the Bahamas and South Florida.
For a second day Monday, rescue crews were searching waters for James Miller, 30. The Coast Guard says the Charleston man reportedly jumped off the cruise ship Bahamas Celebration early Sunday. The ship was about 27 miles east of Delray Beach in Florida when Miller was reported missing around 2 a.m.
The Coast Guard said the Celebration’s crew turned the vessel around to search for Miller once he was reported missing. It is now docked at Port Everglades in Florida.
A Coast Guard cutter, two air crews and various small boats have deployed during the search. The FBI is also investigating his disappearance.
The 673-foot long Bahamas Celebration can hold 1,250 passengers, according to a website for the ship. The vessel normally starts its cruises in Palm Beach, Florida.
